I think people make this transition from cornerback to safety way to casually. Playing safety is more than about straight line speed. Its an instinctive position which requires recognition skills, diagnosing the play, reading the quarterback and the uncanny knack of always being around the ball. Its a completely different set of skills than a cornerback, where you're primary job is just to stay with your WR. Ed Reed doesn't get all those interceptions because he runs a 4.3.
